REWRITER DRIVES WON'T BURN TO CD-RS?

Hi,

I have one internal & one external DVD/CD rewriter drives. If I put a blank CD-R into either they both send up the window recognising a blank disc is inserted but I am unable to simply copy/paste onto CD or drag & drop. I used to be able use these methods so something has happened.

If I use a software program it is business as usual & burning is simple.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

My computer - right click the drive - select properties - recording tab - tick the box "Enable CD recording on this drive.

Perhaps the Imapi CD Burning service is disabled or not running correctly.

Run services.msc and have a look.

Thanks FB but I don't have a recording tab in properties? Perhaps this is part of the problem?

Any thoughts?

Thanks.

click on my computer and then, right click on the dvd/cd drive, and select properties. You can access recording from here.
